Homily from the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time.
"What's one of the reasons you and I offer sacrifices? One of the reasons is because you and I need it. ...In the old covenant, they understood the power that money can have over someone's heart, how it could enslave someone, because almost nothing can enslave someone like money can. So they said right away to just give God your best, give God your first fruits. And the question I can ask myself tonight is this: do I give God my best? Or do I give God whatever's left?"
